The only game I have is breath of the wild but at 75 yrs of age, I am not as quick to respond as my grandsons. So I am thinking about buying farming simulator. My question is, should I also buy a SD Card. I do not buy digital games.

Of course !
And buying a Micro SD Card for Switch is a MUST.
My Switch has a 128 GB SanDisk Micro SD card inside and i play Switch games physically.
The price was quite pricey but you will get the satisfaction.
You can get the Physical release of Farming Simulator to save more GB on your Switch internal storage.

Oh, pardon of my ignorance, i forgot to introduce myself politely.
So, Mr Tkv, for elder in age 70++ years, the games like Dragon Quest Builders, Yonder the Cloud Catcher Chronicles, Portal Knights are also great choices for you. Those games also have a "farming" in the games, despite the farming is not as complex as Farming games.
Oh, for next year, we will get My Time at Portia, Re:Legend, Summer in Mara, etc as the succesors of Harvest Moon games.
They are Farming sims games.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

@tkvalead I am assuming you are talking about Farming Simulator 17. Anyway, if you are buying physical games, you don't need to worry about SD card, especially if you only own a handful of games.

And even if you were to buy them digitally, Farming Simulator 17 is surprisingly small, less than 3 GB. And your Switch comes with around 30 GB of internal storage.

Thank you gentlemen for your responses. I’m really enjoying this gaming. Sure beats watching tv all day.

I play Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley regularly.

I do have a farming simulator on a few devices, but I’m not good with cars.

On the switch, I’d recommend it only if you find it cheap or wait for a sale, since it’s way too expensive on consoles.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@tkvalead highly recommend the series. I think Yonder would be another good option. Glad your enjoying yourself.

Is farming simulator 17 a switch game?

On the Switch they called it Farming Simulator for Nintendo Switch, but it's really just the 17 version.

Thank you. Looking forward to purchasing this game. Hope this thread continues to grow. This would be a good place to go for suggestions on purchases and marketing.

Farming Simulator - Nintendo Switch Edition is available physical. A microSD card wouldn't be necessary then. It's only necessary when downloading loads of big games. But it is great to have anyway, so you can download all the updates and demos and free stuff.
Farming Simulator is, like the name says, a simulator though and not really a game. It's a complete different design to Zelda. If you want a farming game you're better off with something widely acclaimed such as Stardew Valley or Harvest Moon.

@tkvalead You could use the new YouTube app on Switch to look at gameplay videos of the titles these gentlemen have suggested, too! It may give you an idea of what interests you more. I personally enjoy Harvest Moon.

I will certainly check those other game out on u-tube. The only action game I have ever enjoyed has been the Zelda series. I’m not really into the combat type of games. I do like The Who done it type of games. I am also loving this site, so thank you all gentlemen.

@tkvalead You ever try puzzle games? I have Puyo Puyo Tetris on Switch, and it's a ton of fun. I've played it with people who have little video game experience and they got the hang of it pretty quickly.

There's a free demo on the eshop if you're interested in trying it.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

Reader rag fish, I certainly will, thank you.

What is your preferred method for playing this game? I am referring to real time or speeding up the play. Wondering if playing real time would give you more time to do other missions to earn more dollars for your farm.

If you want to play manually then the best would be leaving time going at a reasonable speed.

Managing what each car does doesn't take much input, but it's still important to keep an eye open so no car is idle when there's something to do.

Don't bother controlling the cars when tending to fields, It's a lot easier to pay the computer to drive them for you. For starters they won't veer off and waste time correcting themselves. This way you can also multi task.

Try to keep your silo stocked up, so you always have something to sell for missions or big price spikes.

I'm not sure if this is available on the Switch, but if you are currently "controlling" a harvesting machine (it doesn't matter if it's on auto), and it's full, you can honk and the nearest tractor (with the correct equipment) will come and automatically align itself to receive the produce.

Great stuff Yosheel. I do believe it’s going to be a great game to play. Picking up the game tomorrow.

Purchased farming simulator today. Play for about 3 hrs and decided to take a break to check out some videos about this game. I need a lot of work controlling the farm equipment. I will probably end up spending most of the night playing a practice game trying to figure out just how everything works. As bad as I am playing right now, I’m really going to enjoy this game. Sure hope someone comes up with some mods. So gentlemen, I will keep you informed on any suggest Imay have.

I prefer the Euro/American Truck Simulator series, but Farming is still cool.

I like how Farming Simulator (or any other sim) lets you control actual machines for farming, unlike HM where you do everything by hand, so you get some variety. I like Pure Farming on PC. It has more crops and more maps and stuff that I like.
